Authorities are looking for a driver who hit and killed a pedestrian while fleeing from Hanahan police Sunday night.
A person walking across Read Street was struck by a burgundy 2014 Chrysler 200 that had crossed Remount Road from Robinson Street at 8 p.m., according to S.C. Highway Patrol Sgt. Bob Beres.
Hanahan Deputy Police Chief Michael Fowler said the pursuit began on Hawthorne Road near Sedgefield Drive, where officers tried to stop the driver on suspicion of DUI. Police then suspected the “presence of marijuana,” Fowler said.
The Charleston County Coroner’s Office will identify the victim.
Anyone with information about the driver’s whereabouts is asked to call Highway Patrol at 843-953-6010.
